    Live music, an ocean view, amazing service and mouthwatering dishes - Honu's is my new favorite restaurant for dinner in Kona! I have dined here twice for dinner and several times for breakfast. Dinner: I love the ambiance of the live music, fire pits and tiki torches. The restaurant is right by the beach and offers a beautiful view of Kamakahonu - a historical landmark and King Kamehameha the Great's final home. We tried the crispy snapper, braised ribs and chicken pasta - they were all amazing! The price point here is amazing too, I was surprised to see dinner dishes here less expensive than other Kona restaurants that lack ambiance and don't even have an ocean view. The portions are HUGE. I had the dessert for the month of May - Surinam Cherry Cobbler - It was the perfect balance of sweetness and tart. I wish it was on the menu all year! IT WAS SOOOOO GOOD! Breakfast: They have an affordable all you can eat breakfast buffet around $25 which again - is a better deal than other restaurants in Kona. There is also an Ala-carte menu with a savory loco moko and my fave - the kalua pork eggs Benedict. YUMMMM

    Was really looking forward to the prime rib. It was medium well at best. Should be cooked to medium rare. Heard similar comments from others. The dessert table was also not as appealing as Ed had hoped for. The key lime dessert was extremely salty. Very disappointing

    Delicious dinner special. Fresh mahi mahi. Dressing on spinach salad needed more flavor. Drinks were great
